[www.inewsguyana.com] – Acting Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Joseph Harmon has confirmed that the new APNU+AFC government will review the employment of contract workers, given the fact that they are paid a higher salary than public servants.
Following the swearing in ceremony of President David Granger, Harmon reminded of the 100 days plan which the APNU+AFC has in place, pointing out that time is of essence.
“We will review these as a matter of policy. We said we were going to review them and it is just a matter of time before we do so…A day has already passed; this is day one; we have 99 days left to deliver on these promises,” Harmon told reporters.
He however made it clear that employees in the public service will not be victimized.
“We are not about witch hunting…once persons do their work well, by the time the Ministers are sworn in, then the Ministers will be interviewing people…We want all government agencies and entities, the head of those organizations to understand that their duty is to the people of Guyana and whatever they do, they have to keep that in mind.”
